In a tweet on Thursday night, AirAsia Group chief executive officer (CEO) Tan Sri Tony Fernandes shared a photo of the now-empty check-in counters, saying, "From my desk at LCCT. Deserted. Built for 10 million expanded to 15 million but we did 20 million due to 3 year delay."

Why would you want to plan vacations so far in advance?For starters, the earlier you know where your destination is, the longer you have to shop around for bargains on travel. No matter what you’re purchasing, the longer you give yourself to find bargains on that purchase, the more likely you are to find a bargain. Another advantage of deciding where and when you’re going to travel far in advance is that it’s much easier to get the exact days off that you want. At most jobs, it’s very difficult to get the days off that you want – particularly if you want several days off – if you wait until the last minute.Even more important, it allows you to take advantage of truly low rates. For example in my case I wanted to go to Langkawi Air Show better known as LIMA2015 (March 2015).
Remember Planning ahead – far ahead – for your travel saves you real cash.
Another important factor to note is that airline and hotel prices vary throughout a week as well as throughout a year. Generally, prices hit a low point several months away from the actual date of the trip, and it’s been established pretty clearly that Tuesday afternoons tend to be the cheapest time of the week to reserve a flight.Try to booked your Hotel & Air Ticket at WEGO
The end result of planning that far in advance is that my airline tickets were incredibly cheap AIRASIA FREE SEAT

Traffic continues to grow in 2010. In the third quarter of last year, passenger numbers were up 12.5% at KLIA, with regional airport growth just over 7%. In both cases, international traffic growth was outperforming domestic traffic.
Malaysia Airports is currently constructing the brand new KLIA 2; a low-cost carrier terminal that will initially be used exclusively by AirAsia and will be able handle 30 million annual passengers.
According to schedule data from OAG, AirAsia now operates more flights and more seat capacity at KLIA than Malaysia Airlines, even before AirAsia X, Thai AirAsia and Indonesia AirAsia are taken into account. However, Malaysia Airlines does serve more destinations non-stop (66) from the airport than its low-cost rival. A total of 53 airlines currently offer scheduled services from KLIA including KLM and Lufthansa from Europe, but there are no US carriers present at the airport. In fact, the airport still has no direct flights to any US airport.
New services launched from KLIA in 2010 include AirAsia to Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Yangon; AirAsia X to Delhi, Mumbai, Seoul and Tokyo Haneda; Malaysia Airlines to Bandung; Oman Air to Muscat; and Royal Jordanian to Amman. AirAsia X has already announced Christchurch and Paris as new destinations for 2011.
Firefly's plane Boeing 737-800.
Cabin interior of B737-800.
A significant development starting this weekend is the introduction of Firefly service between KLIA and Kota Kinabalu (three daily flights) and Kuching (four daily flights) using the airline’s recently acquired 737-800s. Firefly is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines that until now has operated purely turboprop aircraft from the old Kuala Lumpur airport at Subang.
Beyond Kuala Lumpur, there are seven airports which handled more than a million passengers per annum in 2009. Kota Kinabalu is the leading airport in the Malaysian region of Sabah while Kuching is the busiest airport in Sarawak.

I have been travelling not a lot but quite a few time for the past 2 years and have had a chance to see,feel and appreciate or dislike the airline that I travel with.So far,I can say that I'm quite fond of low cost carrier 'Air Asia' and her tag line 'Now everyone can fly'.To be honest I'm always travel with zero fare offer by this carrier and enjoy the smooth flight of Airbus 320 .The wonderful thing about this budget airline is that the arrival/departure terminal is in LCCT(Low Cost Carrier Terminal) and I can take a bus ride to KL Central just for Rm8.00 for one way.This is very good for backpacker like me who carry only my camera & laptop backpack which is less then 10 kg.
To travel overseas maybe many budget Malaysian still prefer AirAsia X.
Firefly’s first Boeing 737-800 arrives in December 2010 and will begin its operations on the 15th of January 2011 from the Main Terminal Building, KLIA.
Next year onward or perhaps some of you have already plan ahead your trip from East to West Malaysia ...Now you have option..Yes,yes.the community airline which is spread its wing and lovely bright orange has decided to show off their newly B737-800.Oh!!! how I wish I'm onboard to photograph this beautiful still bird
From 15th of January 2011:
- 2x daily Kuala Lumpur – Kota Kinabalu
- 2x daily Kuala Lumpur – Kuching
From 24th of January 2011:
- 3x daily Kuala Lumpur – Kota Kinabalu
- 4x daily Kuala Lumpur – Kuching
Passenger reviews on Firefly SKYTRAX.

Today with prices rising,the airlines will not raise prices and instead try to run other companies into the ground by lowering prices.Is this a healthy competition?
AirAsia Bhd was cut to "underperform" from "outperform" at RHB Research Institute Sdn Bhd to reflect a potential price war after Malaysian Airline System Bhd announced plans to expand its Firefly budget carrier unit.
AirAsia's indicative fair value was cut to RM2.10 from RM3.01, RHB said in a report today. -- Bloomberg
B737-800 has 189 seats -. nine more seats than the Airbus 320.

I like Firefly because when you pay one fare price and you will be allowed 20kgs of checked in baggage, 7kgs of hand carry luggage, you may choose your desired seat no, and be served soft drinks and snack on board without any additional charges.
For AirAsia each passenger is permitted to check in bags with a maximum weight of 15 kg. A baggage fee is charged for the carriage of checked baggage, which will be charged at a discounted rate if purchased at time of booking or up to 24 hours prior to the scheduled time of departure or at a full rate at the airport check-in counters. Passengers have to pay RM 20 when checked online and RM 30 when checked at the airport.
I wish every one a happy holiday .

The LCCT Low Cost Carrier Terminal is specifically designed to suit the Low Cost Carrier (LCC) business model where it would have no travellators, escalators, aerobridges and would be able to have a shorter turnaround time.During boarding you got to walk yourself to the plane. The pathway is quite a distance maybe about 100m. Not a fun thing when is raining even though they do provide umbrellas for you. Not really user friendly for disable and passengers with baby to carry and with hand luggage to look after with.

Quick turn round.....aircraft refueling,loading of cargo and passengers boarding all at the same time.
Take off......Wow !!! my flight KUL-KCH it was ahead of schedule,some 20 mins ahead.
Towing of aircraft.
enjoy the skyscape .
Aircraft parking bay.
There was not many passengers onboard on my flight KUL-KCH maybe 40% occupancy.
Kuching International Airport(KIA)
The earth may be dappled with puffs of fine weather cumulus.
Budget travellers like me and I don't expect too much about the inflight services.Most often I get what I pay for.Low cost no frills carrier.
Th seat are pretty cramp for a tall or big size person..Believe it or not Airline charging passengers by weight..Well i suppose this is because of fuel price...the heavier the aircraft its burn more fuel.I hope our two avaition business AirAsia & Malaysia Airline did not apply this rule.Hey!!!!so here is the incentive for fat people to lose weight and I suppose if we are fat we will be charge more than maybe if we are skinny then we will get more discounted airfare.Well at least it give some incentive to stay slim.
Next people hope Airsia can issue seat numbers instead of following the present policy of free seating which causes lots of anxiety to passengers.People start to queue up sometime even an hour before the plane arrives.This is because when few people start queuing up,others follow and even jump queue.So if you wanted to become VVIP of the day perhap you pay Rm10.00 for express boarding.If seat numbers are allocated then passengers will not rush.
I think this system is unique or perhap some people says this is more of nuisance than a services.
Well,my flight to KCH from KUL is about 1 hour and 40 mins,no matter what Airline company I choose to fly with in this case AirAsia and MalaysiaAirline are the two choices to fly from KL to Kuching and vice versa.

So next time you travell remember Travelling Light.Some Airline now impose baggage handling fee and excess baggage fee still applies for checked baggag exceeding 15kg.So there your are again FUEL COST,fuel fuel fuel..........."One of the major causes is abviously fuel..you use more fuel when the aircraft is heavier.Every bag that you checked in,you will be charge Rm5.00 per bag,but if you buy online on the days before then you will be charge Rm3.00 per bag.
I'm ex-employee of Airline work in Malaysia and Jeddah(Saudi Arabia) but very long ago.
Let me say a few words of" Carry On Bag aka Hand Luggage among Malaysian travellers."
IS YOUR CARRY ON BAG LEGAL ??????
Many luggage stores sell suitcases described as "Carry On or Hand Luggage",but these suitcases are sometimes larger than the size most airlines will accept.
The safe maximum size is 45" in the form of a 22"x14"x9" bag.Some airline allow up to as much as 55" but most do not.Carru on baggage must fit under the seat or in an overhead compartment.
Remember wheeled suitcases with telescoping handleds are very popular to-day,particularly in carry on type.You may be ask to check these piece,on certain flights because there are not enough room on board the plane for everyone to bring on this type of baggages.
Briefcases,small and medium size backpack and garments bags are generally considerd carry on pieces.
For many reasons-your own convenience,and courtesy for others passengers or guests,I personally recommend you focus more on bringing the smallest carry on or hand luggage you truly need rather han the largest hand luggages with you.
So enjoy your flight and holiday.
